Spook9MM on Infinite Green mill by way ...

Umbral Mantle + Viridian Joiner is already a popular combo to net you tons of green mana. If I were to add a Screaming Shield onto the joiner, I'm now able to go infinite mill??

I skimmed the primer, you might have already answered these questions. Sorry if that's the case. But what are the purposes of Lotleth Troll and Farseek ? It feels like those cards don't offer much. Also, I feel like zoning in more on the elf package could be interesting. Priest of Titania and Elvish Archdruid are good with outlets like Umbral Mantle and Staff of Domination .

And, welcome to the format! You can leave your soul by the door.

Been working on getting this Yisan deck to a competitive level and when going through and organizing my collection I found an Umbral Mantle and got really excited cause untap effects are amazing for him. any suggestions on what else I could put in and what all I should take out would be greatly appreciated.

By tax, do you mean having to pay for each creature attacking? If so, Nacatl War-Pride is my go to for that situation. Ypu only have yo declare 1 attacker and use kamahl and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx to take someone out. Another option in a group game is using Hydra Omnivore against the player with the least defenses and making it big, then you can damage the tax player indirectly. As far as other suggestions, you can opt out cards like Krosan Grip or Unravel the Aether for creatures that blow up artifacts and enchantments, it would make it easier to tutor for those effects. Bane of Progress could be really good if it's a continuous problem even though I don't like having to blow my own stuff up.

There's quite a few cards that are specifically in the deck for better interactions within my playgroup that can be changed out for more efficient ways to get big mana. I've been looking at adding Umbral Mantle as a third option for infinite mana and Thousand-Year Elixir as a way to speed up tapping my dorks and potential for big mana with the extra untap. Hopensome of these help. Otherwise hit me back and come up with more ideas to fight the problem.

CyborgAeon: Cheers for the response. I had looked at using Freed from the Real , however my biggest concern with it an Bloom Tender is that you end up producing WBRG each loop (assuming you have your commander out). This in turn is not enough to loop Sliver Overlord and then means I can't combo via it. That's why I went for Umbral Mantle instead - it lets me produce WUBRG from both Bloom Tender and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds . I was also thinking of adding Gaea's Cradle so that I could put Umbral Mantle on Kiora's Follower as well.

The reason I was looking at Nivix Guildmage was that as well as producing infinite mana, he can act as a draw engine for Timetwister and Noxious Revival without the extra card requirements. Though Izzet Guildmage seems good too, I had kind of forgotten about him. Talking to a mate about it, he was actually recommending Riftsweeper instead, which does go all in on the Acidic Sliver line but technically provides redundancy on every pieces.

I'm on the fence about Copy Artifact - it's not bad but I don't think I need it here.

As for Overlord himself, I get that he's basically a dedicated combo piece. But the benefit of him is that he provides access to all five colours, provides a tutor for the deck win condition and can help get there faster by tutoring 2 mana BoPs in the form of Manaweft Sliver and Gemhide Sliver . He's also naturally a 7/7, which is nothing to scoff at. I did think about Hivestone but decided not to run it as it's only good for mana fixing, which I can get with Cryptolith Rite . I was thinking about Arcane Adaptation which gives Overlord deck-wide tutor, but for now am under the opinion that it's too mana inefficient. I might change my mind on this though.

So a Freed from the Real variant? Umbral Mantle / Sword of the Paruns / Staff of Domination is traditional.

I like the idea of green untap spells though- Burst of Strength / Stony Strength / Ornamental Courage 's single mana cost could offer some serious ramp and could back Inspiring Call and Gyre Sage .

Thousand-Year Elixir hasn't found a deck it fits in yet either, since Swiftfoot Boots is usually better, but this has options to play it.

Hey, so I think you should run Umbral Mantle over Sword of the Paruns , only because its cheaper option in terms of mana (umbral needs 6 to get going, paruns need 10). I recommend goblin war strike, its useful for removing a big creature (just like outnumber), but it is also useful in just out right removing someone from the game. If you ever have mana issues (especially given the higher cmc cards you run), i recommend Brightstone Ritual , Battle Hymn , and Mana Echoes (mana echoes is especially useful in that when krenko taps, the tokens that he creates in would end up creating a lot of colorless mana rather quickly. (Theres a formula to it, 2N^2, where N is number of goblins created. In addition, when you a lot of mana, you could use Comet Storm to just win against an entire group.
